Bellucci Premium responds to an article published by the Daily Camera that discusses how to lead a healthier lifestyle by following the Mediterranean diet instead of relying on supplements.
In an article published by the Daily Camera on December30th titled “Finding nourishment at your own table,”it is suggested that getting nutrients from food is more beneficial for health than getting nutrients from supplements. In a study by the United States Preventive Services Task Force, it was reported that, “calcium supplements do not appear to prevent bone fractures in older women and that the best source of calcium is from diet, not supplements.” The article suggests people “look to [their] table for [their] vitamins and other nutrients rather than expecting to find them in a bottle.”
The article gets more specific about what foods to eat for optimal nutrient consumption and suggests the Mediterranean diet. A Mediterranean diet is rich in fish, legumes, vegetables, fruits, and olive oil. It limits the intake of sugar, refined flour, and meats like beef and pork. A study done by the Annals of Internal Medicine “looked at roughly 10,000 people in their 40s and 50s [and] found that the diet helped raised their chances of living past 70 more than 40 percent. Health outcomes were improved even in those who didn't lose weight.”
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for high-quality extra virgin olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “The Mediterranean diet has been revered for its potency in fighting chronic disease. Eating plenty of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, otherwise known as ‘good fats’, is directly linked to improved heart and brain health. The Mediterranean diet is especially a great choice for those worried about diabetes because it excludes sugar and refined flour and replaces them with whole grains.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
